Reader Christine from Jane Avion cleverly created her own “feather tree” with wire and fun fur yarn she purchased at the dollar store. This amazing tree will cost you less than $10 to make, but it looks like a million bucks (isn’t that what they charge for cool decorations like this? I’m out of touch with regular retail prices). Check out her blog, where she shares the entire [tutorial for making a feather tree].

Project Estimate:

  • 14 gauge wire, about $5
  • 1 ball furry yarn, $1
  • Wire pliers/cutters, on hand (or at dollar store for $1)
  • Tall can, on hand
  • Dry rice to fill the can, on hand

Total: $6
